Artistically Pleasing Image Rendering

The CN-E85mm T1.3 FP X Sumire Prime Lens introduces a unique optical design with a nuanced look as the lens aperture approaches its maximum setting – subtly modifying the textural renderings of the human facial close-up. It also smooths the transition to the fall-off portions of the scene resulting in pleasing bokeh.

High Resolution and Warm Colors

The lens features a large diameter aspheric lens and anomalous dispersion glass, working to deliver high resolution imaging from the center of the image to the outer edges. This helps bring out the high quality of 4K cinema images. The lens produces warm color tones that help to softly capture facial expressions and enable better depiction of textures captured through the lens.

Fast T Number

Operating at T1.3 allows users to shoot brighter in low-light settings and with softer and greater bokeh.

Unified Warm Color Balance within Canon Cinema Lenses

Canon’s color science has become highly refined over generations of lens designs, paying the closest attention to a pleasing skin tone reproduction. The Sumire Prime CN-E85mm T1.3 FP X can be used interchangeably with other Canon Cinema lenses during the same production since they all have the same warm color characteristics — making it easier to maintain consistent color when multiple lenses are used.

Minimized Focus Breathing

The lens has been designed to minimize variations in the angle of view while focusing, a phenomenon known as focus breathing. This feature is extremely important while focus pulling, where changes in the angle of view due to focus breathing could become apparent to the viewer.

Support for the latest Full-frame Cameras

The Sumire Prime CN-E85mm T1.3 FP X covers full-frame and Super 35mm sensors and works well with today’s full-frame cameras from leading manufacturers.

11-blade Iris

The Sumire Prime CN-E85mm T1.3 FP X features an 11-blade iris. This produces artistic and beautiful out-of-focus areas, creating a more three-dimensional bokeh with a deeper depth of field that a super wide-angle lens can offer, broadening the range of visual expression. The use of an odd number of blades also helps reduce flaring of specular highlights. Additionally, the iris ring is mechanically controlled with no click stops for smooth exposure adjustments while recording.

Outstanding Operability & Reliability

Designed to meet the needs of professional cinematographers, the Sumire Prime CN-E85mm T1.3 FP X features a unified front diameter (114mm), rotation angle (300°) and gear position on the focus and iris rings (making lens switching quick and convenient) across our entire Sumire Prime Lens series. The control rings work to maintain the right amount of resistance and operating torque in order to help provide the camera operator or assistant with a consistent feel and predictable lens operation. In addition, matte boxes and accessories can be used even after switching lenses.

105mm Front Lens Threading for Screw on Filters

To allow for additional ease of use and flexibility, the Sumire Prime CN-E85mm T1.3 FP X features threading on the front of the lens to accommodate 105mm screw on filters. This feature allows the camera operator to add filters over the lens without the need for a matte box to be attached to the camera system helping to provide flexibility in filter choice as well as the ability to shoot in a more streamlined format.

Visible Distance Indicators

Distance indicators are displayed on both sides of the lens. To improve visibility in nighttime and dark area shooting, indicator markings with phosphorescent paint have been adopted for the front barrel (for right-side viewing).
